Weekend Quote: Less and More

7 Comments 1124 views

The comments and insight on my last post have been awesome! I love reading everyone’s opinion and a lot of them got me thinking–am I over-complicating things? I do have a habit of doing that and I don’t think I’m the only one. ;)

It reminded me of a saying I heard once… (I love the web, I can find anything!)

Fear less, hope more, eat less, chew more, whine less, breathe more, talk less, say more, hate less, love more, and good things will be yours.
 -Swedish Proverb

I know life can’t always be that simple but it also isn’t as complicated as we sometimes make it.

Today I worried less and played more. Sometimes you just have to be.

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    Roni – I missed the comments for your last post, but I wanted to let you know that we had this very discussion in my WW meeting about a month ago about recipe builder vs individual components. It got pretty heated, since the leader gave a vague response that is similar to the letter you received.

    The bottom line is that WW has not come up with a rule about this, and it creates pretty big discrepancies between electronic users (who might use the recipe builder) and paper trackers.

    Your instincts to not worry about it are right, this will work out in your day to day eating. For the record, I no longer use the recipe builder because it means my soups and salads are heavily “penalized” in the points calculations.

    I had a similar experience to Robin. It sorta irritated me and honestly, it was the final straw that led to me quitting meetings and just doing the program at home using etools. I am strongly considering just returnning to Momentum (because I was making good choices and it was going really well for me). I like aspects of PointsPlus but I had already adapted many of those under the Momentum plan and sometimes PP (like calculating and recalculating old recipes, etc.) is very burdensome which is leading me to feel like I am in ‘diet burnout’. I started at 250 pounds about 7 months ago and I am ‘down’ to 182…I don’t want to burnout before I reach goal due to feeling like this is too much effort iykwim. Ugh. Glad I am not alone in my experience. Paying the $$$ to Weight Watchers I am really frustrated with the vauge responses – on multiple levels as a nursing mom, fwiw.

    Some times we spend more time worrying than enjoying our life, and life is so short better star living it!!!

    Love the quote. Much more inspiring than chanting to myself, “damn, girl. why’d you eat like that again?!!!” ;)
